Within a subject libguide, to search for reference sources, look for the tabs that read "Reference”, "Key Reference Tools", “Encyclopedias”, “Dictionaries” or “Background Information”.
The reference room of each Dalhousie library includes a wide variety of encyclopedias, dictionaries and other reference sources to provide you with background information and potential search words related to your research topic.
The Dalhousie Libraries also provide a number of subject-specific reference sources online. A selection is included in the large box on this page. To identify more online or print encyclopedias in specific subject areas, click on the link below:
